Sooooo I may have made pizza 4 days so far this week. And I may have herb pizza dough in the bread maker as we speak. And I make have plans to make an Italian hoagie “wedgy” tomorrow… And I may have been sad tonight that my perogie pizza didn’t come outgreasy enough. lol yes it’s an obsession. But u can’t tell me it doesn’t look yummy!!!
BBQ chicken pizza with fresh mozzarella red onions and corn
Perogie pizza one of the many tastes of pittsburgh…. Mmmm
This happened to me this weekend…. It involved unearthing my breadmaker, buying a pizza stone (ahhhhmazing) and getting down with my italian side
Not cool pittsburgh… Not cool!
I wont be blogging as much over the next couple weeks. I’ve been putting a lot of time and energy into fixing up the house, getting back on track with food and exercise and working with steve to fix what went terribly wrong in the relationship. I think we’re making progress but it won’t be anything instant or over night. In the meantime I am loving summer in Pittsburgh right now. Who wouldnt love coming out of a tunnel an seeing this…
Saturday I allowed steve to come over and walk Minnie with me. He then said he was going to rebuild the retaining wall that has been falling down for 2 yrs. Knowing that I could burn some major calories in the heat doing construction I agreed to help. Plus I hoped we could work on our communication issues at the same time.
I surprised myself by how assertive I was. Believe it or not I know a little bit about building and such from helping my dad when I was younger. I did half of the work and made him talk me through all of the steps I didn’t know.
The wall isn’t finished but 3/4 of the way there. In the process I tore my hands up pretty good. Blisters all over everything some that I couldn’t get clean and I’m fighting infection now. Ugh the cost of a nice house/ property.
On A different note the song ” criminal” just came on on vh1. Talk about a blast from the past. Fiona Apple has some ugly feet love the song though.
I also had a dream last night the a road I was driving on had a quick bend and I ended up driving off a cliff. It was terrifying and I woke up in complete spams. I don’t know if ive ever had that kind of falling dream before and don’t ever want to have one again!
This week has been very therapeutic. I have refrained from all chores, started taking my showers in the evening after working out and have been sleeping pretty much straight through the night with little to no back pain.
I pretty much shut myself down in order to recover. I am sad that I won’t be able to “get away” to the lake this weekend but it’s ok.
I’ve thought about a lot over this week and I can’t rule out that steve and I are done for good but I certainly needed this time and I know that he did.
On a positive note I got an iPhone on Tuesday and am completely obsessed. I’m using a full scale fitness and calorie tracker which is keeping me on the straight and narrow.
I almost had a conniption when I logged puff pastry and saw the calorie count. I’ve walked for 45 min every night on the treadmill and stayed in the 1500 calorie range every day. Bring it baby I can do this.
I did make some little meals and treats last week before things took a turn… i was cooking for myself as the ex-boy was out of town for work…
And I made a breakfast for dinner meal adapted from cooking fanatic and a mishmash type of brownie that involved chocolate, graham crackers, bananas and marshmallows…
I’ll post the recipes for them later this week… but here’s a sneak peek…
i call it a baked breakfast burrito casserole lol
banana s'more brownies
